More and more people use mobile devices to access the World Wide Web, so the need for mobile-friendly websites is constantly growing. To meet this demand, the entity that controls the universal top-level extensions, ICANN, established the dot MOBI domain name extension in 2005. The first registrations were enabled in September 2006, and the intention behind this extension is that all websites that use it must comply with specific regulations. In other words, all dot MOBI websites have to be built to be accessed without problems by mobile devices in agreement with the so-called “MWI Best Practices for mobile content” established by the W3C Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) in partnership with the dot MOBI Registry organization. These have to do with how a web page is being navigated, the way it is being displayed (form and size), etc.
The rules have raised some questions given that the gTLD is the only one that specifies what devices ought to be able to access a website and the way in which this needs to happen, breaking the so-called principles of device independence, according to which a website should be created in such a way as to be accessed by most web browser applications and devices, be they mobile or stationary.
In view of the fact that the dot MOBI Registry does not sell domains directly, you can book a .MOBI domain with any 3rd-party provider, such as ours. If you have an already registered domain, you can also transfer it to our company if you obtain its EPP transfer code from your current registrar company. If you do that, you’ll be able to administer your domain(s) and web hosting account from one and the same place – our Hepsia Control Panel tool.
